About:

 

Hi. I'm a self taught furniture & jewelry designer, sculpture maker, photographer, & filmmaker. Born and raised in Northern Idaho, I loaded up my beat up old 1972 VW Super Beetle, and headed to Los Angeles to pursue a career in filmmaking in my early twenties. The car broke down, but I made it. After a year working as a production assistant, then camera assistant, I moved back to the Northwest to pursue a career in action sports cinematography, focusing on snowboarding. It was during this time I finally picked up an old 35mm camera and started making static images.

Over the following years, I also began collecting furniture, mostly chairs, and found a love for furniture design. In time, I began selling vintage pieces I had collected, in order to allow myself to continue hunting for and bringing home new pieces. So, I unintentionally became a vintage furniture dealer. From there, I eventually ventured into designing and building my own pieces.

After jumping between Los Angeles, Portland, OR, and Seattle for several years, I've recently relocated to back to Idaho to get away from the rat race, and regain focus. The Nevada desert will likely be my next destination in the very near future. Possibly Los Angels, which has been calling me ever since I left.

I'm currently focused on developing a jewelry line, which is my most recent endeavor and primary focus for the time being.

And not to brag, but my work has been featured in national and international publications such as TWS Japan, Heckler, and Reload Magazine. I also made a documentary that headlined in the internationally touring Bicycle Film Festival. Oh yeah, I once used to do Snoop Dogg's grocery shopping. For real.

Cheers
